          Abstract

          Two species of Parasitidae, Parasitus americanus (Berlese, 1905) and Cornigamasus ocliferius Skorupski & Witaliński, 1997 were found for the first time in Slovakia. Parasitus americanus is a cosmopolitan species, which was found in several cemeteries and in a botanic garden in Bratislava. Almost all records of C. ocliferius are from Poland except for one record from Egypt. Cornigamasus ocliferius was found in decomposed plant material in Western and Central Slovakia and in bird nests in Western and Eastern Slovakia; part of the material was previously published as Cornigamasus lunaris (Berlese, 1882) and is revised here.
